February 20th, 1939
While speaking with a friend yesterday who was concerned with where the world is headed, he posed this question to me: “Am I being too dramatic? It seems like the world is going to hell…”
For a couple of seconds, I thought about how to answer that question and decided to make sure he’d really have something to think about, so I told him this:
Had this been 1523, just 500 years ago, a blip in the story of human beings and just half a millennia ago, Europeans were slaves to a local aristocrat who made them work his fields and fight his wars. The printing press had just been invented, and the 98% of the population who didn’t know how to read or write a single word and were occupied with getting enough calories to live another day were exposed to information for the first time.
If you fast-forward to 1723, the year that Benjamin Franklin arrived in Philadelphia at the age of 17, you can imagine the world human beings were living in.
Hundreds of thousands of Europeans who were taxed FOR BREATHING escaped British rule and risked their lives on the 90-day journey across the ocean!
They had no electricity, no automobiles, no medicine, no tractors to plow the fields, no Internet, no air conditioning in the summer, and I could go on and on.
Most of the world was filled with violence, wars, bloodshed, and horrors on a daily basis, and some of the greatest documents ever written, the American Constitution and Bill of Rights, were yet a far-fetched dream – a figment of the imagination.
Even 84 years ago, in 1939, after the invention of the radio, airplanes, and so much more, in Madison Square Garden at the heart of New York City, 20,000 German Americans gathered to talk about the future of America:

Hitler did say that America could be conquered from WITHIN and fall as an overripe plum.
My point, I told my friend, is that in times of great changes, as we are going through today, extreme ideas, hatred, and notions of foreign enemies and domestic division are very common.
2023 is no different from many other years in the American story and the journey of the human race in general.
War, conflict over territory, dominance, military supremacy, access to resources, a feeling of superiority over others, and contempt for opposing factions are the NORMS, not the exception.
Remember that if this were February 1939, the German American Bund would be conducting a rally in NYC guarded by the police and funded by the taxpayers. In times of desperation and economic struggle, such as what people are going through today, pointing the blame is what governments want to do to SHIFT ATTENTION away from internal issues.
It’s the oldest political trick in the book!
Inflation must come under control, or more desperate measures will be taken by governments to divert the public away from domestic failures.
Today is not extraordinary, unfortunately… today is another day to make educated and reasonable decisions for yourself and teach those around you to do the same so that the nation as a whole won’t lose its senses.
Remember one thing: NO ONE goes broke or loses their job, position, or lifestyle if they continue to do MORE than they are currently doing. Personal growth is the cure to the problem we face today.
Evolve or perish and develop or wither away and be swept by the extreme ideas of the times.
